Downs throws a goose egg against the Mallards in shutout victory.

The Mallards dropped their first game of the 2015 season due to an impressive performance on the mound by Lakeshore Chinooks starter Gavin Downs. 

Downs dazzled in the Chinooks 1-0 victory against the hot-hitting Madison Mallards, as he threw a complete game shutout, allowing only five hits and struck out five as he moved to 1-0 on the season. A junior from Purdue, Downs lowered his ERA to a terrific 0.60 over 15 innings pitched. 

The Chinooks will look for the series sweep tomorrow as they take on the Mallards at 6:35 PM.
